Enjoy an evening of musical magic with Fairport Convention as the
legendary band celebrates its golden anniversary year.
Credited with originating British folk-rock, Fairport first took to the stage in 1967 and throughout the intervening five decades the
band’s passion for live performance has never wavered.
To mark its fiftieth year, Fairport has released a brand new CD titled
50:50\@50. The band will play a selection of tracks from the album as well as long-established favourites from their extensive repertoire.
Tonight’s concert will also feature an opening performance by Sally Barker, one of England’s most talented singer-songwriters. Sally came to prominence in the all-girl folk group The Poozies but is best known for her appearances on the BBC TV talent show The Voice where she sang on Sir Tom Jones’ team.
Fairport Convention has attracted critical acclaim throughout its long career. The band won a coveted BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Radio 2 listeners voted Fairport’s groundbreaking album Liege & Lief 'The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time', and their story and music has often featured on radio and television.
Fairport Convention’s line-up is Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, Ric Sanders on violin and Gerry Conway on drums and percussion.
“Impressive musicians with a great back catalogue... (they) take chances and clearly enjoy themselves.” The Guardian
“Vigorous and confident...the music leapt around the room.” The Mirror
